Best Answer

In most cases, a blown fuse is the problem. Check the fuse box. The fuse box should have a diagram on the cover that shows which fuses are for which circuits. Find the cigarette lighter fuse and check it. If it's bad, replace it. If the fuse blows again, you have an electrical problem that a mechanic will need to check out. If the fuse wasn't bad to begin with, there's probably an issue with the wiring between the fuse box and the lighter. You'll need to have that checked as well.
